One of the prevailing concerns surrounding the Los Angeles Rams is 2016 No. 1 overall draft pick Jared Goff's potential to evolve into a formidable NFL quarterback. Fred Roggin and Jason Smith debated the topic during L.A. Today this week.
"Everybody flashed before their first seven games in the NFL. They all showed a little bit of ‘okay, this guy’s got something.’ We got our guy," Jason remarked when discussing promising young quarterbacks in the league. "He may struggle, but we’ll be okay because he’s flashed. Jared Goff did not flash at all. He didn’t flash anything. All that he flashed was that he was completely overmatched...When you are a fumble risk every time you drop back to pass, that’s not just a function of the offense. That’s a function of how you act under pressure."
Roggin counters that Goff was set up to fail with an inept offense, and is being judged too harshly on his rookie season.
